New Apex Legends Hotfix Patch Fixes Knockdown Shields


Respawn has released a new hotfix patch for Apex Legends that makes a few player-requested bug fixes to the game. Additionally, the September Soiree limited-time event–which had been previously put on hold following game breaking issues–is back on.

The new patch most notably addresses knockdown shields, which have been broken since the start of Season 6: Boosted. They will now do what they’re supposed to do and consistently block bullets when you’re downed. The full patch notes are listed below.

Apex Legends September 10 Hotfix Patch Notes

  • Fixes:
    • Improvements to Reconnect
    • Wraith portals disappearing if place in certain areas
    • Knockdown shields not blocking shots
    • Beacons showing up in minimap but not in-world
    • Improved Ring logic
    • Several game logic errors

The September Soiree returns with a fan-favorite mode: Kings Canyon After Dark. The mode allows you to play on a nighttime version of Season 2’s Kings Canyon–so yes, if you miss Skull Town, the mode will allow you to once again drop onto and fight in the popular landmark.

Kings Canyon After Dark won’t be here forever, though. September Soiree is just like January 2020’s Grand Soiree Arcade, in that limited-time modes are quickly rotated out and replaced by new ones every few days. Kings Canyon After Dark will be rotated out on September 15. The September Soiree lasts until October 5.
